Inspired by her reading of Frantz Fanon, and filming with a gritty, Pialat-influenced realism, Claire Denis set her moody second feature amid the subterranean world of cockfighting. Descas and De Bankolé play two Beninese immigrants training a rooster for a fight in the Paris suburbs, whose bond strains under the pressure of life as outsiders in a white world.
